The first thing I hear from a lot of customers is that “I kept my old recording in a box, safely inside my closet, does it really need restoration?” The short answer is a resounding YES!

Any image taken on analog film will require color correction to look its best; the blue pigments in film from the 60’s to the 80’s have a tendency to deteriorate even after a couple years. I saw this as a child when an old baby picture of mine had turned red within 3 years of it being taken, just sitting there on my mother’s dresser. Depending on the brand and age of the film, the red can also deteriorate making the image look blue. Luckily digital technology can correct all but the most deteriorated red pictures.

Pictures in a frame can fade out by simply being in a in a bright sunny place. The paper is very susceptible to UV rays which can make the paper delicate as well as pale.

Even VHS tape is subject to magnetic damage, (simply placing a tape on top on an old tube TV can partially erase tape). The sensors in early camcorders were not the most accurate in reproducing color, especially in low light. A white wedding dress in low light will look almost tan.

Lastly, any analog audio recorded on tape has SOME degree of hiss, noise and other factors that color the sound. Records of course, suffer from “pops and clicks” and are VERY sensitive to dirt and dust. If that wasn’t enough, the surfaces are delicate; scratches are very noticeable in the audio.

Knowing what to do with these old recordings is the key to making them better than new. Sure, computers can make this stuff better, but proper preparation of old recordings ensures the very best results.
